Photonics Platform to Transform Mobile Fronthaul Infrastructure
Research Project , 2020 – 2023

Future wireless systems of mobile networks and defence platforms will need to offer high-speed, low-delay, reliable connectivity and high bandwidth. With the explosive growth of wireless systems, this creates significant challenges in fronthaul - the link connecting antennas with the signal processors and core network. This project
aims to design and develop an innovative fronthaul for wireless systems based on a dynamically reconfigurable, software-defined photonic platform capable of meeting diverse requirements. The outcomes of this project will help build a scalable fronthaul solution to overcome fundamental challenges and realise cost-effective pathways for transforming how future wireless networks and defence platforms are realised.
